Dub Judah is a modern day dub roots legend. Since he came on the scene in the early 90s he has consistently been at the top of the chart for lovers of serious conscious roots and heavy dub.He is a producer, engineer and multi-instrumentalist – best known as a bass player and vocalist. He records and performs under his own name and is a core member of the Twinkle Brothers band who are well known as the ruffest live roots band going.His own songs, usually released on his own Dub jockey label, always stand out from the crowd with original and thought-provoking lyrics over deep and spiritual rhythms always featuring the most inventive and heavy of bass lines.His early LPs like ‘Babylon is a Trap’, ‘Better to be Good’ and ‘Almighty Jah’ made a huge impact and established him firmly as a serious presence on the dub scene. His ability to craft original thought-provoking lyrics and to conjure us amazing bass lines has seen him work with loads of the top names in the field – including the likes of Alpha & Omega, Creation Stepper, Gussie P, Prince Fatty and Ireland’s own Cian Finn. We, Firehouse Skank have been playing his music from then ‘til now and it is always outstanding – a perfect fit for our sound system in terms of the musical dynamics and spirituality.We are delighted to be teaming up with the Purty Loft to bring him over (all the way from Nottingham!) for a special one-off dub session. We will be bringing our own sound system and Judah will play live bass, melodica and sing while doing a live mix of a selection of his deepest rhythms. It
won’t be a gig as you know it. This is going to be a unique event – never experienced before on these shores. The best dub rhythms in a live mix heard through the best dub sound system in the land for a totally immersive experience in sound and vibes.
